Port O’ Call is situated along the beachfront in Trafalgar,
a small coastal town on the lower south coast of Kwazulu-Natal,
midway between Margate to the north and Port Edward to the
south. Two beach paths provide direct access to 5km of uninterrupted
beach with Marina Beach and San Lameer to the north and Mpenjati
Nature Reserve and Palm Beach to the south. Whilst the beach
is part of the Trafalgar Marine Reserve normal recreational
activities are allowed and only spear fishing and gathering
of bait and crayfish is prohibited.
The main swimming beach is protected by shark nets and life
guards are on duty over week-ends and during school holidays.
Our beach is a safe beach and is popular with swimmers and
surfers and the area is well known for its fishing. Being
away from the densely populated areas our seawater quality
is also excellent.
The area is generally unspoilt and during low tides the shallow
reefs can be explored with snorkels and walkers will find
the long sandy beaches ideal for their daily walks. There
are five golf courses and numerous other sporting and entertainment
facilities available between Shelly Beach and the Wild Coast
Casino. A visit to Oribi Gorge is an attractive alternate
on days when the beach is not favoured.
Remember.... if you intend spending your holiday at the sea
- Port O’ Call is your guarantee that next to the sea
you will be!
